Propagation Protocols for Pacific Northwest Plants

Last Updated 05/31/17

Trees

Below is an incomplete list of tree species that are native to the Pacific Northwest according to the USDA Plants database.  This table is organized alphabetically by scientific name.  Species names that are active links can be clicked on to view the propagation protocol for that species.  Species that do not have active links had protocols prepared in 2003-2006; these protocols are available here.

These protocols were produced by students in ESRM 412 (Native Plant Production) at the University of Washington between 2007 and the present.  Detailed information about the protocol assignment, including a template, can be found on the course website.
